Theresa May: Qatada deportation 'concludes efforts'

Abu Qatada has left Britain after a near decade-long battle to get him out of the country.

Home Secretary Theresa May said: "Abu Qatada was deported today to his home country of Jordan to face terrorism charges.

"His departure marks the conclusion of efforts to remove him since 2001 and I believe this will be welcomed by the British public."
